Logitech is not really famous for their bluetooth speakers, which is why no one has really heard of the S$99 Logitech x300.
The x300 is the size of a small can of coke and has a rubberized surface which makes it feel more durable. And though it is only $99 and looks quite ordinary, when you hold it, it does not feel cheap. It also has USB charging which allows you to charge it from a portable battery or your pc. You can make voice calls on it from the speakerphone and it has a stated 5 hour battery life. It is splash proof and do check out our review video in which we gave it a cold shower.
Audio is loud for a small speaker, enough to fill a small living room or bedroom. I was impressed by how loud it sounded for a ninety-nine dollar speaker. Vocals in general were loud and clear. Although it has a bass radiator the bass sounded flat and underwhelming. The high notes sounded restrained by the audio processor, possibly to stop it from distorting. While this is to reduce audio distortion, it made me feel like something was missing from my music. Ice kachang but no ice, mee goreng but no mee. You know?
Logitech claims that the drivers are angled for 'more expansive sound for a mobile theater experience'. What I got is actually slightly better audio coverage in my room. No mobile theater experience at all. But at least they don't claim that it has '360 degree sound'.
Though the Logitech x300 is loud and clear enough for a wide variety of music and videos, that's the only thing that impressed me. Where's that mobile theater sound that they promised? The design is uninspired as well, it's pretty boring, to be frank. and finally, the battery life was below average. I played it at around 60 percent volume and it had barely 4 hours of juice and not the five hours that was stated. But if I only had nine-nine dollars to spend for a speaker, I can't complain. BUT if the government gives out GST credits again, I would totally spend that extra fifty bucks and go for the hundred and forty nine dollar UE Roll. It sounds much better and has better features, though it doesn't have a speakerphone.
